At 12.55 hrs., the Police patrol arrived at house # 59 on Stadium Street and saw the barrel of a rifle sticking out of the window of the house directed towards the street. The officers were not able to see who was holding the rifle because of the windows curtains. The Team Leader of the AB-1 Patrol requested a backup by radio.

The Team Leader of the AB-1 Patrol loudly gave the verbal command to whoever was in the house to throw the rifle out of the window and walk slowly out of the house with their hands up in the air. No sound or movement came from the house and the rifle remained in the same position.  The Team Leader warned the gunman that if he did not follow the previously given verbal command, the police would open fire. Again, there was no response from inside of the house. Upon consultation with the Commander of the RRPS, the Team Leader reported the situation through the chain of command requesting permission to force their way into the house.

At 13.40 hrs, the backup unit began an operation.  A few seconds prior to the operation, the RRPS used sound and flash grenades. Three teams simultaneously stormed the house from different sides: two officers broke through the windows facing a back yard, two officers rushed into the building through the eastern side of the house, and another three officers got access to the interior of the house through the western window. During the operation, police faced no resistance. As the police entered the house, they observed that nobody was inside. The rifle was resting on the window of the living room with the barrel pointing towards the street and the butt of the rifle was held on by an armchair.. The RRPS didn’t find any residents while conducting an additional quick search of the house. In total Police found one 12-mm hunter’s rifle, two empty bullet cases on the floor near the window and blood stains on the armchair. The police preserved the scene and called Forensics.

They made a search of the area and found 5 more empty bullet cases of 9 mm near the fence of the house. They also found 3 bullets stuck in the wall. Upon initial examination, the forensic group believed the bullets were those shot from 9 mm Beretta pistol. The forensic team took the rifle, all empty bullet cases, the bullets extracted from the wall and samples of blood, which were taken from the stains of the armchair, into custody for further examinations.
FOLLOW-UP REPORT # 4

After the departure of the RRPS at 14.20 hrs, the AB-1 Patrol Team went to a neighboring house looking for any witnesses of the occurrence. They managed to take a statement from a Serbian woman namely Gordana Bashich living in that house at 59 Stadium Street. She provided details of the shooting incident and notified police that her neighbor, Branko Ilich, male Serb, 45-year old, was kidnapped.
Some time later, the patrol unit heard on the radio, that a black Volkswagen Passat sedan with passengers had been stopped at a Kosovo Force (KFOR) check point near the airport. During the vehicle examination, check point military staff found one unconscious man in the trunk laying in a puddle of blood. An additional search revealed three illegal Beretta pistols in possession of the passengers. They were detained and later handed over to the police for further investigation. The wounded man from the trunk was taken by the airport police to the hospital.

            This is the second section of the UNPOL Combined Language Assessment.  It is divided into two parts. In the first part you will hear one person describing the mission-related topic you have just read about in the Reading Comprehension – it will be introduced as the Narrative. In the second part, you will hear a conversation between two people who are discussing the same mission-related topic – it will be introduced as the Dialogue.

                Please be reminded that the use of any computer devices, microphones, books, external notes or assistance from others is not permitted. Candidates who fail to observe appropriate conduct during this test will be excluded from the assessment process. Such actions will be duly noted and communicated in writing to the authorities of the Member State concerned and to the SAAT Coordinator in the UN Police Division.

                You will be given a Report Writing Form and another Blank Sheet of paper. Take careful notes on the Blank Sheet of paper of both the Narrative and the Dialogue. Pay attention to the important facts and key information. You will hear the recording only one time.

                You will have 30 minutes to complete your police report. The instructor will indicate when these 30 minutes begin. The instructor will then announce when there are 5 minutes remaining and when there is one final minute.

                Please do not forget to write your full name and your individual test serial number clearly in the spaces provided on the Report Writing Sheet.

Good Luck!
NARRATIVE
Referring to the case of shooting at 59 Stadium Street on 14 March 2005, Police Patrol Team AB-1 knocked on the door of the neighboring house. After approximately 10 minutes, an elderly woman, namely Gordana Bashich, opened the door. She said that initially she did not want to open the door because she was afraid of the gunfire in the vicinity of her house. She stated that she lived alone, as her husband had been killed last year, and her son was in Austria with his family now. The Police officers introduced themselves, and the woman invited them in. Gordana stated that approximately at 12.30 hrs, when cooking lunch, she heard a car stop on the road between her and Branko Ilich’s house. She looked through the window curtains and saw a black car with three men in it. They were calling for the neighbor. Gordana saw all three of them clearly when they got out of the car. They all had a muscular build and were all in black uniforms with black panther emblems on their sleeves; two were wearing black hats while the third one did not but instead, his grey hair was visible. One of the men wearing a hat had a distinctly strong accent while he spoke. Branko replied that he did not want to talk to them and told them to go away.  The visitors ordered him to come with them to repair their vehicles, otherwise they would kill him. A few minutes later, she heard two shots coming from Branko’s house. Those three men returned fire and she heard her neighbor, Branko screaming. When the gunfire ended, she stated that she saw those men placing Branko into the trunk of their car. He seemed unconscious, and Gordana also noticed that he was wounded and that his right shoulder was bleeding. The car departed and the witness was sure that they had driven towards the airport. Gordana thought that those perpetrators wanted Branko to repair their vehicles because he was a good automobile mechanic, which he refused to do.  The witness added that for the last three months unknown armed people in uniforms had been looting the nearby houses and terrorizing the Serbian neighborhood. She also informed that her neighborhood was scared and felt insecure because they did not believe the local authorities, including the police, could protect them. She knew that some families had already fled the area and gone to Serbia seeking shelter with their relatives. The AB-1 Team Leader reported the received details to the Duty Officer at the Police Station and assured Gordana that UN and KFOR would be patrolling the area more frequently.
DIALOGUE
UN Police Patrol Team Leader (TL)
Good afternoon, Madam. Frankly speaking we did not expect anybody to open their door to us. We are the UN Police Patrol and came here because of the shooting we heard right near your house. Would you mind talking about it?
Witness
I was scared; that’s why I did not want to open up. But please, come in. We can talk.
UN Police Patrol TL
Thank you, Madam. Could you tell me something about yourself?
Witness
I am Gordana Bashich, I am 60 years old. I was born here and have been living here all my life.
UN Police Patrol TL
Do you live here alone?
Witness
Yes. My husband was killed last year, and my son with his wife and 2 kids left 5 years ago. They are living in Austria now.
UN Police Patrol TL
OK, what happened today?
Witness
I was cooking lunch when I heard a car stop on the road between my house and Branko’s. It was approximately 12:30 hrs.
UN Police Patrol TL
Did you look outside?
Witness
Of course I did. I took a look through the window curtains and saw a black car and three men in it calling out for Branko. I could see them when they got out of the car.
UN Police Patrol TL
So what did they look like?
Witness
All three of them had a muscular build and were in black uniforms with a black panther on their sleeves. Two were wearing black hats while the third one was not; he had grey hair. One of the men wearing a hat was shouting to Branko in Serbian but he had a distinctly strong accent.
UN Police Patrol TL
What caused the shooting?
Witness
The visitors wanted Branko to go with them but he didn't want to talk to them or join them. He told them to leave. They started threatening him but Branko seemed to shoot at them twice.
UN Police Patrol TL
What do you think those people wanted from your neighbor?
Witness
Branko is a good automobile mechanic; I guess they wanted him to repair their vehicles.

UN Police Patrol TL
Did the three men return fire?
Witness
Yes, it looked that way. I heard five shots followed by Branko’s screaming. They stopped shooting, entered the house and in a few minutes they were outside with Branko who could hardly move. I also saw his right shoulder bleeding. 
UN Police Patrol TL
Did the visitors take him with them?
Witness
Yes, they opened the trunk of their car and dropped him in there. He seemed unconscious.
UN Police Patrol TL
Did you notice where they drove to?
Witness
I am sure they drove toward the airport. It is the only good road here.
UN Police Patrol TL
Have you seen those uniformed people before?
Witness
I am not sure. But unknown armed people in uniforms have been looting the nearby villages and terrorizing the Serbian neighborhood for the last three months. The neighborhood is scared and feels insecure because  they don't believe the local authorities, including police, can protect them. I know that some families have already fled the area and gone to Serbia seeking shelter with their relatives.
UN Police Patrol TL
Thank you very much for your assistance. I will report the security situation in your area, and I am sure that the presence of international forces will be increased here through a greater number of patrols.
Witness
Thank you.
